About SandraParm
Joined June 2015
My story as short as possible.

Until 2006 I was purely working in administration (same stuff, different day). I was living in Dublin (I am Australian but moved to Ireland in 2002 because I could lol) but after a while working in administration (yet again) I felt like there had to be more to life so I applied to go to University as a mature aged student (I never went to University after grade 12). I had a huge interest in turtles (yes, sea turtles) and applied to do a Bachelor Degree in Science (Marine Biology). I returned to Australia with the dream of completing my degree and travelling the world saving the turtles (sounds silly I know but that's what I thought).

A few months after commencing my degree I met my now husband Glenn and while he supported me (bless his heart as he had a low paying job at the time) I completed my degree. At the end of it though I knew I wouldn't be travelling the world saving the turtles.

I went to work at an aquarium and moved onto a Govt job. Great money, great job but with some horrible people. We decided to have a baby and although she took a couple of years to arrive, she did and then I became a stay at home mum.

Cut to the chase.... It's tough living on one wage. I didn't want to go back into the workforce and miss out on my little girl growing up. I started a home business hiring out toddlers toys for parties etc. but even after 16 months it still brings in very very little money, needless to say my deductions outweigh my income.

My goal now is to contribute more to the family income without having to go out into the workforce which would require me to stick my daughter into childcare.

A little bit more about me personally..... I am a google addict. I could sit on the computer for hours just googling. My neighbour says I should make a living out of it lol. I also like to spend time with my daughter and I would love to spend more time with my husband but he works A LOT. I like to read as well fiction novels that take me out of reality. Since having a child my interests are her interests so I can't really say I'm that interesting. Maybe I could add more here later. Watch this space.......

Thank you for following me in ‘Wealthy Affiliate’ Sandra
This is one of the very best places I have personally been in years and am sure it is for you too!
Having risen to 256 in the rankings in my fist month, I can assure you that this was achieved solely by following Kyle’s teachings exactly to the word. I would advise anyone who is new to ‘WA’ to just follow what Kyle teaches in his training’s and not try to do it their own way. “Re-inventing the wheel“, I believe it’s called 
I wish you every success in all you are striving for in WA, good luck,
Roger

Hi Sandra, it’s a pleasure to meet me, lol.

No seriously, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for following me. I’m pretty impressed with WA training and I think we will find a gold mine of information. Hmmm, seems like geniuses like us tend to gather in the same place (lol).

Anyway, here’s wishing you all my best for your success with online marketing. Please feel free to send me a private message if there is anything I can do for you. You may also want to check out my WA profile blog posts as there is some interesting and informative information there.

Sorry for the late response. I've been under the weather and I'm just now getting to my back log of email.

Sandra, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Sandra.

Hi Kyle,
I've stalled a bit with the Affiliate Bootcamp as I don't know anything about Internet Marketing and selling WA therefore building a website just for that, and keeping up with content regarding Internet Marketing is just a struggle for me at the moment so I am working on my 2 websites at the moment. I do have a WA sale banner in one of them though.
I'll keep plugging away with the training and my current websites and one day I will know enough about Internet Marketing and will be able to have a website dedicated to just that. Cheers, Sandi.

Yeah, keep your niche specific to a passion or interest. You can always revisit the IM niche down the road when you have a bit more experience, that is completely fine Sandra.

Follow your passion and success will always come chasing after you, not the other way around.

Welcome Sandra! Your story sounds very similar to mine. I am also trying to figure out a way to work from home so I can spend more time with my 2 kids without having to put them in daycare (they are in school full time, but they would need care before and after school if both my husband and I were working full time). Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

SandraParm Premium
Hi Tanja. That was my thoughts when she finally goes to school that she would need at least after school care but hopefully with the help from WA I won't need to worry about that and can be there for her. I do have her in childcare 2 days a week but I utilise this time wisely lol. Cheers, Sandi.

TanjaRita Premium
With hard work, it may just happen. Child care a few days a week is good for both the child and the parent! I did this when both of mine were not in school and ran a private speech therapy practice on those 2 days.

Hi Sandra. Thanks for the follow.
Can I just say I love your story! Having a dream of travelling the world and saving turtles is most definately not silly, though I'm sure that that are those who would think it is. Like you I have a passion for saving anything really. Love animals, love the planet and want to save all of it. Sounds like you lived the dream anyway. your hubby is obviously amazing, supporting you the way he does and your daughter is beautiful.....and you ARE interesting :) Looking forward to connecting with you !!

Hi Sandra. Welcome to WA.
It looks like you may have found a way to roll all of your skills and hobbies into a work from home business, by starting off with the lessons here.
It may or may not be obvious what exactly your business will be, but you have all of the attributes to make a good go of it.
I wish you success and shout out if I can help.
Go well from Janelle.

Welcome Sandra,
We share the same goals as I'm also a mom of a little baby girl wanting to make an income out of my website. I've been here for a little more than 3 months and I haven't done much money yet. I know some members made money in the early months but it's not the majority. It can take time so I' m giving it at least a year to see if it's worth it. Let me know if you need help on anything.
I wish you success and hope you are enjoying you experience so far.

Hi Carolyn. Just love your website. I left a comment for you too :-). Just a small suggestion though. When you first open the website it's a list of blogs and nothing pops out because there are no pictures until you click read more. A visible picture would entice me to click the read more even if the title didn't.
Cheers
Sandi.

Hi Sandra, Thanks for your suggestion. Every time I look at my home page I have the same thought :-) I definitely have to find a different theme to have an image for each post. I just find it hard to find one that I like...
Reply
SandraParm Premium
I agree with you on the themes. I've been trying to find a theme I like but there are not that many that I feel suit small businesses. There are a couple of wedding sites I noticed. Can you not insert an image at the start of the posts?
Reply
CarolynCal1 Premium
I've looked and I was not able to find a way... I guess I'll have to look for another theme.
Reply
SandraParm Premium
I love that you can look at previews of the themes with your website information included and then just not save and activate them. I've installed a few themes and done exactly this. Keep your eye on latest themes as there are always new ones added every few days.

CarolynCal1 Premium
Thanks for letting me know. I guess it's time for me to step back and see how I can improve what I've done so far.
How is it going for you so far? I left a comment on your second website as I couldn't find posts on the first one.

SandraParm Premium
Thanks. I'm struggling to work out what sort of posts I want on sunny tots website. I just know I need to do something. There are a lot of party idea websites out there so I'm unsure of what to post about. I look at other peoples sites and I am in awe. I feel my sites are not very professional looking. It's taking me a while to get through the training which I'm sure will help me along the way.

CarolynCal1 Premium
Hi Sandra,
Have you made some searches with the WA keyword tool? This is how I get most of my ideas. I guess you can find many interesting post topics around toddler party themes, activities, popular games, ect. You can even create one for each group of age. Eventually, each of these posts can funnel to a specific post where you feature products you want to sell or rent. Let me know how you're doing.

Hi Sandi!

Thank you for the condolences. It has been tough. I moved from far away to be with my mom and take care of her. I also created a tribute site in honor of my deceased Dad and all of his mighty accomplishments. You can check it out here www.acrossadeadlyfield.com

Thanks again and I do hope you will be able to stay home with your little angel soon/
